Exceptionally crystallized Famatinite specimen from this old gold-copper mine of northern Taiwan. Usually these were found with Luzonite as intergrowth, which often require further examination to confirm the existance of Famatinite as the bulk compostion of the specimen. This specimen is 3.7cm tall, with well formed crystals to 5mm.
